Charis: God's Scandalous Grace for Us

Charis: God's Scandalous Grace for Us
 

Charis flows from my 8 years of teaching the Old Testament to college students. You might think that would produce a book about judgment – but no way. I show how every character, every event, every single page from the Old Testament bleeds with grace.

If I could be honest, this was the funnest book I've ever written. It’s accessible, engaging, down to earth, and it’ll reshape how you think about grace and God’s love for you–guaranteed! 

Here are some reviews from my readers: 

"I read one line of this book as a quote and was so impressed with that quote that I looked book up and purchased it. I believe this is the BEST book that I have read this year" - Amazon Reviewer
"LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I love this book. It tears grace apart. It approaches it from every angle and brings you to your knees...Get this book. It will change you" - Natalie
"Most insightful book that I have read in a long time. This perspective is something that everyone should hear and seriously consider. The book was also written in an entertaining and engaging way. I really enjoyed it!" - Ragus
"This book blew me away! Agreed "There have been many books on grace, but this one will be different"! This book is outstanding!" - George
"Wow, I was not expecting to be stood on my head and have my whole view,of grace turned upside down. Not only grace but God's unconditional love and delight in me." - DiDee
"What more to say, as I was reading I couldn't put the book down I continued to read all the more as the revelation of Grace was changing my heart. Thank you so much!" - John
"I've never before read a book that I would categorize as "spiritual growth reading" that impacted me like this book has done. Preston is so powerful in his description of God's grace that I could not stop reading. Like a wonderful, beautiful novel that you just can't put down, "Charis" has touched me deep in my spirit, and I happened upon it shortly after two grievous hurts against me had caused me to struggle terribly with giving grace. I needed this! Now I want to give copies to everyone I know." - Trish
 
To be totally fair and honest, and to make sure you don't just read "the good" reviews, here's one by a more critical reviewer: 
 
"While I enjoyed the basis of this book, and have recommended it to a friend I feel would relate well, it was a tough read due to the dramatic tactics used to convey points. It seemed like Preston became a Christian version of a radio shock jock to get his points across and delights in using extreme, while still true, stories and analogies. I gave my copy to a former drug addict who has had an insanely rough life and this style was a great motivator for her. She understood fully the different stories as she could relate. I on the other hand thought it was a bit excessive. I do recommend this book. I just wish I knew the tactics ahead of time so I could prepare myself for the direction the author was going to take." - Amazon Reviewer
